Shelf Life #1

Like most bookish people, I take great pride in my bookshelf.

As some of you know, when I purchase a new hardcover or paperback book, I post a Welcome to the Shelf message (for Kindle books, I post a Welcome to the Kindle message). For my Welcome to the Shelf messages, I make a collage of 3 pictures (1 of the cover, 1 of the author's name, and 1 of the book on the shelf. Also, sometimes I add a picture of an undress hardcover if it has a distinctive color or design).

Why? Because, who doesn't love to stare at pictures of books!

Plus, one of the major ways I decide if I want to purchase a physical copy verses a Kindle edition is based on the cover art and the spine art (and it can be difficult to find pictures of spine art).

Anywho…I've rearranged my bookshelf and now most of my books have new shelf-mates.
